That's local street food to try!

I have been here long time ago. However, I do not think I shouldn't review this place as it exist for more than two centuries :) This review is aimed at tourists and visitors, as every single local knows this "Institution".

Traditional street food: very tasty! If you visit Savona, you must eat the traditional "panissa" with or without bun. An ancient traditional food in a typical place. Do not miss it!

I remember this little place, I've enjoyed the "fette" here since I was a kid....and they are still fantastic (not to mention the fact that they are really good value)! The place is tiny, they only do take away,but if you really want to try real "panizza" or lovely "frisceu" this isTHE PLACE

Once we were student that was our snack. Now still. From everywhere you are coming go there and taste "Focaccette con Panizza" Better if have chance to get some "Nostralino" wine together. And enjoy a walk through he historical part of the city belonging two Popes Sisto IV and Giulio II

A lovely speciality from Savona . Well worth trying as it is made from chick peas and for one euro seventy it is a good little snack and a change from pizza or pasta
